One thought on “Sending Your Child To An RTF Placement: 9 Questions to Ask

  • October 21, 2016 at 6:50 am

    This information is very helpful. My daughter is in an rtf placement after leaving a 7 month stay at an impatient children’s psych hospital. The hospital was truly a blessing and has helped her grow, learn, adjust. I live on long Island and after reading this I understand how lucky I am to live here, NYS pays for everything and no consultant needed. I always complain about our taxes and cost of living but won’t anymore. Having a child with mental illness is truly the most painful thing a parent could suffer. My oldest daughter compared our lives to having a death but the feeling is daily, everyone in the family is affected by it. Most days I walk around in a fog but love my family with all my heart.
